out on gay marriage and only did because joe biden forced his hand. the same thing with gun control. newtown changes the landscape just like 9/11 changed the landscape. i wonder if the president didn't do two things that will cost him nothing, appeased his base knowing he has to compromise move moving forward and put the republicans now on guns and gay marriage and climate change in a position where they will apologioppose it, may win and will look older and more out of touch with younger voters. >> a speech outside washington all this appeal tom coming together and did it at the white house we are going to do this if you want to do this. i thought he was reaching out to american voters and saying, here's my agenda but i need you to come with me and make this happen. i thought in that respect it was an intensely political speech, you're right. there was none of the red states, blue states, purple state of 2009. there was much more of the ideal and he had even said he would give clean water to african countries, that was a change the world speech. this was far more practical, far mor
gun control is now a white house campaign-style effort and vice president joe biden held a social media town hall, a google hangout to rally support. >> make your voices heard. this outfit, this town listens when people rise up and speak. >> reporter: the white house and feinstein know their biggest hurdle is convincing fellow democrats from gun right states to support gun control. >> the message to democrats is, see what your silence does? there will be more of these. >> reporter: no surprise, wolf, saying that they don't like this proposed ban. feinstein is, once again, focused on curtailing the constitution instead of prosecuting criminals or fixing the mental health system. we are confident congress will deny the wrong-headed approach. >> it's not just republicans who are going to be opposed to what senator feinstein is proposing. a whole lot of democrats are going to be nervous about it as well. >> reporter: precisely. that's what senator feinstein was saying there in the piece, that her message to those fellow democrats, which they really are her first target, if you will, i

with a question that everybody in washington's asking. are the democrats going to be putting up joe biden for president in 2016? here's how the vice president answered that question when asked yesterday. >> is there any reason you wouldn't run? >> oh, there's a whole lot of reasons why i wouldn't run. i haven't made that decision. and i don't have to make that decision for a while. >> so are you ready to run against hillary clinton in 2016? >> i haven't made that judgment, and hillary hasn't made that judgment, but i can tell you what. everything that should be done over the next two years that i should be part of would have to be done whether i run or i don't run. if this administration is successful, whoever is running as a democrat's better positioned to win. if we're not successful, whoever runs as the nominee is going to be less likely to win. >> you know, mike allen, there are a few reasons why joe biden might not run. one of them that i can think of right off the top of my head is if a meteor crashes into the naval observatory, a la armageddon style, perhaps he wouldn't run. but we

on the sale and transfer of all assault weapons. vice president joe biden said today assault weapons aren't necessary for personal protection. >> the shotgun will keep you a lot safer. a double barrel shotgun than the assault weapon in somebody's hands, you know it's hard tore use an assault weapon to hit something that is a shotgun. okay? >> by the way, the new classification would include a number of rifles, shotguns, and hand guns as well. >> shepard: i mentioned the nra is all over this? >> here is reaction from the group today saying this, senator feinstein has been trying to ban guns from law abiding citizens for decades. it's disappointing but not surprise she's focused on curtailing the constitution instead of prosecuting criminals or fixing our broken mental health system. the nra says it's confident congress will not pass this particular bill. senate majority leader democrat harry reid, a long-time gun rights advocate, has been under pressure to act. he is hinting he may allow a measure to go to a vote, but only with a very liberal amendment process which could strip out the mos
. >>> there he is joe biden taking the oath of office this morning and not far from here in fact over at the naval observatory, and a twist of historic irony perhaps the country's first black president's public swearing is going to happen on the same day that we honor one of america's great civil rights activists, martin luther king jr. we will pause to remember dr. king's birthday and i'd like to bring in andrew young the third, former civil rights leader and ambassador andrew young. good to see you, sir. >> hey, craig, how are you doing? >> great. your father is a long time friend and confidant of reverend king. what have you learned from your father, and also, his generation as well? >> you know, i think that it is very important that we as americans today give each other a faith-saving way out, and that is one thing that my father was adamant about throughout his life is that when you have an opponent and have indifferences about a subject, that you give your opponent a way out. to keep his dignity and that is how you create change, and that is what dr. king and my father and dr.
this battalion of democracy today to president barack obama and vice president joe biden, and to you gentlemen i say, congratulations, and godspeed. >> reporter: the most poignant picture of the day was this the president going inside from the west front of the capitol, pausing and turning for one last look down the vast expanse of the national mall. another thing he thought he might not see, some daylight on the debt limit fight. republicans said monday they would vote tomorrow to raise the debt limit for three months that delays at least for a while another showdown on the debt which could result in closing down the government. and in just three weeks we get the second act of the president's inaugural address, his state of the union speech. there he will lay out more specifics and washington will be waiting to see if the confrontation continues. norah, charlie? >> bill plante thank you. with us now is the number three republican in the house, congressman kevin mccarthy of california the house majority whip. good morning. >> good morning, thanks for having me. >> if you
, please welcome joe biden and mayor michael hunter. [applause] gentlemen. it is, of course, my distinct honor and pleasure to have the opportunity to introduce our good friend and my good friend, vice president joe biden. throughout his career as a public servant, vice president biden has championed issues that are critical to the prosperity and growth of america's cities, and he has engaged directly with the u.s. conference of mayors on a regular basis. during our annual meeting this past june in orlando, vice president biden pledged that the obama administration would make sure that future infrastructure investments are more targeted to local areas. in november, last year, the vice president hosted our leadership in the white house to discuss the fiscal cliff and the concerns of mayors regarding both investment programs and tax-exempt financing. issueer there's a major that demands attention, again and again and again, vice president joe biden has shown the leadership and courage needed to help move our nation in the right direction. and that is why i was certainly heartened when pres
meeting with vice president joe biden discussing the president's proposals. meantime, as this huffington post headline states, fury by some on the far right as the nra you might say is sticking to their guns rejecting the president's ideas. the nra's also defending the much-criticized ad that mentions the president's daughters. here's nra president david keene just this morning a couple of hours ago on the "today" show. it is not about the president's daughters. >> the ad mentions the president's daughters. >> keeping children safe, savannah. you get in to a bidding match. we shouldn't have a 30-round magazine or a 20 round. the president says let vees a ten. the governor of new york says, well, i can top that. we'll have a seven-round magazine. this is all sort of makes you feel good but, in fact, it doesn't do much. now, if you are out there and if you're crazy and if you've got a gun like this and if you're going to shoot people with it, it takes a second or so to change the magazines. >> and president obama also has an op-ed in today's "connecticut post" saying the truth is there's o
that the celebrations are about the country and its citizens, not the election results. also vice president joe biden and his family greeted supporters at the latino inaugural party. >> hundreds of thousands are gathering on the national mall to see history being made. >> and while officials say right now there is no credible threat, security, as you can imagine, is once again extremely tight. >> reporter: they will be everywhere, snipers dotting roof tops, the coast guard patrolling waterways, military fighter jets enforcing a no-fly zone. 13,000 security personnel blanketing the washington mall. >> protecting an event this large, this complex with this number of people coming requires a lot of coordination and a lot of organization. >> reporter: all coordinating here. the multiagency communications center overseen by the secret service at an undisclosed location. they'll monitor surveillance images and potential threats. the 2009 inauguration was a logistical nightmare, hundreds of ticketholders getting stuck in this tunnel. authorities say this time it will be better. >> there will be such a diffe
'm not going to quote joe biden, but that's a big deal. >> it tends to be from coastal places, whether it's silicon valley or corn gi melon, and they tend to flock to democratic leaning candidates and/or causes, so the question is in the amount of time that you have, which is not a lot of time, how do republicans attract those kinds of -- that kind of talent? >> it does require wrestling with some of the fundamental tenants of the party. you are looking at very superficial things. hang-outs on google. immigration reform was the -- was not a controversial issue within the republican party during the george w. bush years where you had vast -- they're not going to core issues about their view of government, of society, of the market, and i think that you see a great deal of desperation instead taking place. you look at what's happening in virginia and pennsylvania and michigan and the places where they're trying to change the rules in order to kind of hang on to some -- their presidential electoral hopes. >> alex, on this question of democracy, i was trying to think of this quote from bobby
with prayer and song at the washington national cathedral. the president and vice president joe biden are taking part in the traditional post and not real national prayer service, a tradition that dates back to george washington. >> the house of representatives will vote tomorrow on a plan to raise the nation's and debt limit. the plan would accommodate about three more months of baring while requiring the house and senate to pass a budget. if congress fails to raise the 16.4 trillion dollar limit, the nation could potentially be fought on its loans, which economists say it would have a severe economic impact. the treasury is expected to exhaust is a borrowing authority by mid february or early march. >> we will be right back. >> welcome back. we are keeping our eyes on the bay area weather. this is at half moon bay they are sitting at 52 degrees. >> all-nippon airways has canceled flights from tokyo through men into the san jose international airport to early next week to comply with the faa order that grounds bohlen's 787 dream minor plane. the in t snb says that test in washington
about the president's push to reduce gun violence. we heard from joe biden who did the leg work for the guns package that rolled out yesterday. here he is speaking moments ago at the conference of mayors about denying gun sales with a swath of trouble makers. >> time and experience has demonstrated we should take a close look at the list to see if it fits the needs of society at the moment. it's part of our recommendations to the president and it suggested that the attorney general study that question. for example, right now certain convicted stalkers can still purchase guns. >> again that was the vice president a moment ago. as you have probably heard by now, a lot of folks are uneasy. that puts it mildly about this white house guns initiative. we have a house republican who threatened to defund the white house and impeach the president. we have a state rep in tennessee who wants to arrest a federal agent who tried to enforce gun laws and the governor of mississippi is talking about nullifying federal arms directives in history state. tim muller is the sheriff and he wrote to t

be that that worked out very well. >> now, interesting. the vice-president, joe biden, was sworn in several hours before the president over at his official residence. we're told that's because he was sworn in by justice sonia sotomayor. she needed to get to a book signing for her memoir in new york city. she had to catch a train. right beforinstead of doing it n residence, he did it just after 8 a.m. eastern time. justice so toe towe were told ty was wearing reed krakoff. i don't know anything about that. real quick here, ed. i read interesting trivia were. george washington during his second inaugural address spoke for just a short time. the shortest ever, 135 words, and that's it. do you think we'll be around that tomorrow or what do you think? >> reporter: the president's critics probably hope it will be that short. what i've been told by administration officials, probably mor more in the range 5 to 20 minutes which is shorter than some of his other speeches, by the way, back dooring the campaign. they realize it's an important tomorrow, not going to be as short as george washington, of course
